My Fasting Experience

Last month I decided to go on a therapeutic fast (“Heilfasten” in German). I always wanted to do a real fast, just as an experiment and because I know there are true health benefits coming with it. I had done two 3-day juice fasts in the past but I feel they were not ideal as I constantly felt hungry because of all that fruit sugar spiking my blood sugar levels all the time. Now that I had just come back from Australia I felt this was the right time to take it slow, go inwards and to support the process… Read More »My Fasting Experience

Masculine/Feminine Energy & Business

For years we have put a lot of emphasis on the masculine energy when it comes to business and leadership:⁣ action taking, efficiency, thinking, reasoning, giving, strenght⁣ ⁣ while labeling the feminine energy as weakness:⁣ feeling, intuition, creativity, nurture, softness, empathy, receptivity⁣ ⁣ The typical “hustle mentality” has always been associated with being successful and worthy.⁣ Fortunately the world is changing and people are waking up to the realization that it’s rather unhealthy to be in your masculine energy 24/7 – as men and women. You only need to look at how stressed and burnt out our society is. I… Read More »Masculine/Feminine Energy & Business

5am Club?!

Where are all my high-ambitious self-optimizing overachievers who belong to the 5am club? Just kidding…⁣ ⁣ But honestly: For years I thought to be successful you need to get up super early and hustle as if there’s no tomorrow. Personally I’m someone who naturally wakes up between 6 and 7 but that’s still not my most productive time. Even though I get up early I like to take my time and have a slow start into the day, maybe add in a workout, and then 2-3h later tackle my to-do list (typical chronotype „bear“). I used to get up between… Read More »5am Club?!

Enough.

So many of us believe in the misconception of not being “enough” or not having “enough”. ⁣⁣It’s so deeply anchored in us, we don’t even question it.⁣⁣I ask you to question it:⁣⁣Can you love yourself right here, right now, and accept yourself with all your imperfections, with the work in progress that you are?⁣⁣Learn to do so and you will realize that you already are enough.⁣Can you appreciate all that you have in your life – love, friendship, health, food,… – are you truly grateful for these things? ⁣⁣Learn to do so and you will realize that you already have… Read More »Enough.

Intuitive Eating

Do you struggle with an unhealthy relationship with food? Trust me, I understand. For me intuitive eating is something I had to learn again after struggling with an unhealthy relationship with food for the majority of my teenage years up until my mid-twenties. Undereating, overeating, not eating at all, weird eating rules,.. I already left all of that behind years ago with some small relapses inbetween, especially when I got sucked into that whole „high carb low fat“ lifestyle for a little while. I’m so grateful that today I’m able to listen to my body again, for me that’s all… Read More »Intuitive Eating

Why I don’t practice intermittent fasting.

Someone asked me about my thoughts on intermittent fasting so I’m gonna share them with you. First of all: Just because I do not practice what’s typically understood under the term “intermittent fasting” does not mean that you shouldn’t do it. Everyone is different, it may work super well for you. It also depends on what situation you are in. What time you get up, go to bed, what job you are in, where you live etc. So why do I not practice intermittent fasting? 1. I LOVE breakfast, I always did. It’s truly something I look forward to in the… Read More »Why I don’t practice intermittent fasting.

The worst is yet to.. probably not come.

85% of what we worry about never happens.. Five hundred years ago, Michel de Montaigne said: “My life has been filled with terrible misfortune; most of which never happened.” I’ve just read an article sharing this percentage information found out in studies. And I mean, yes.. I can totally imagine this to be true. How often do we imagine worst-case scenarios in our head that in the end never occur? At least I do, that’s one of my main struggles and the reason I worry so much all the time. I worry about things that will probably never happen! Anyway,… Read More »The worst is yet to.. probably not come.

What to love about winter and how to stay positive & healthy during this season.

It’s beginning to look a lot like christmas..❄️⛄ I know, many people don’t like winter and really struggle with staying happy and positive. Some people get seriously depressed during that time. I’m a person that loves winter (not driving through snow with my car though..). There are a lot of things to love about christmas time and winter time in general. However, not gonna lie – I often struggle with keeping a positive mindset during this cold and dark season as well. So let me share with you a few things that help me to cheer up and that make… Read More »What to love about winter and how to stay positive & healthy during this season.

Getting into meditation: My experience with “Headspace”

I’ve heard a lot of people, especially happy and successful people, talk about what benefits they get from meditating regularly. Even my ex-boyfriend was always meditating when we were together and I saw it was doing him good. I never meditated in the past. I sometimes tuned in some guided meditation on my laptop before going to bed to be able to fall asleep easier. This works really good for me but I wouldn’t really say that I was meditating as the purpose of meditating isn’t to fall asleep, I guess.. A few weeks ago I heard about the app called “Headspace” for the first time.… Read More »Getting into meditation: My experience with “Headspace”

There’s more to health than just diet and exercise.

A lot of people that approach a topic such as health, mainly talk about eating a healthy diet and working out but leave everything else aside. In my opinion, the mental components are so underrated although I believe that they belong to the main influences when it comes to being healthy. I just came home from another trip to Morocco this week and I realized once again what positive effects trips like this one have on my health. Everytime I’m travelling, I feel better than when I’m at home although my diet may not be as healthy as at home or I may not work out as much. On… Read More »There’s more to health than just diet and exercise.
